BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA, MOSTAR

We then drove onto Mostar. When we arrived, we had a tour guide explaining the history, as you can see straight away the Ottoman influence in the surrounding buildings. The word “Mostari” literally means bridge keeper. The original bridge was built in 1557. In November 1993, the Croatian army bombed the bridge for days which caused it to collapse. The bridge was rebuilt by hand. And is recognised as a UNESCO world heritage site. And we even witnessed people jumping off for the price of thirty five euros.

Walking around Mostar for me was a bit hit and miss, the walk over was very slippery.

After the tour finished, we walked around the numerous bazaars before deciding to find a bite to eat and to try a Bosnian speciality that had been recommended by our driver Ivan, the Cevapi. This we really enjoyed.
